Young Adult Ministry 

(Ages 18-39)

We all long to be known, to be supported, to have an identity.  Having an authentic community requires those who have encountered Jesus to drop their nets and eagerly accept His invitation to follow Him.  The Young Adults at St. Mary of the Woods desire to take this next step and begin creating spaces for intentional communities to form in order for us to grow deeper in our faith and personal relationships. Our mission is to form Young Adults into intentional disciples of Jesus by giving them the tools they need to build, maintain and grow a young adult community. The goal is NOT to separate Young Adults in the parish, but to foster an environment of growth and formation that will empower them to be become more active in their parish community.
